A wine brokerage firm like AWI provides a full suite of services, from the procurement of the wines, handling, storage to eventual sale*. This allows the collectors and investors to have a greater ease of mind, with no mess and fuss with all their needs catered for.
With AWI, investors receive regular updates on the capital growth performance of their wine portfolios. Furthermore, we provide buy or sell recommendations based on sales figures from auctions or retail prices worldwide, the performance of the wines’ past vintages and international reviews and ratings given by influential wine critics. When required, brokers from AWI will assist clients in placing wine portfolios for sale on international markets, and through auction houses such as Christie’s and Sotheby’s.
AWI's fine-wine sourcing and investment advice has spawned many success stories. One investor who purchased his first label, a case of Torbreck Descendants 2001, followed by Parker Terra Rossa First Growth 1999 and Clarendon Hills Astralis 2000, managed to sell off his latter acquisitions at 25% profit. He now has as much as S$150,000 invested with AWI currently.
* In addition to an investment sum, a wine investor should set aside some funds for shipping, insurance and at least three years of storage.
